We are two mushers - Travis Beals & Sarah Stokey - who share a passion for dog sledding, the Iditarod sled dog race, & story telling. Come meet our dogs, play with our puppies, and learn a little bit about Alaska's state sport before going for a fun dog sled ride. Our tours are kept small, customized to your groups needs, and are very hands on. We look forward to meeting you!

Helicopter ride to dogsled on a glacier. I don't even need to write anymore. It is as epic as it sounds. Guys were super great to hang out with, and it was wonderful to spend time with the dogs.

Again, WHERE are you located? I know that this is in Seward. Is there a street address or road name? Do I just drive into the town and see the kennels? Can you give me driving directions either from Seward or Summit Lake? I'm sorry, I didn't notice your location on this site. Thank you

Hello, Sorry! We didn't know about the "questions" feature in Trip Advisor and were not aware you had asked this. We are about an hour south of Summit Lake and are located in Seward. We hope you will make it down!
